Clorindo Mazurka

    This is another Italian-American mazurka, written by D. Carapelle and published by O. Di Bella in 1919, in an arrangement for two mandolins and guitar by Joseph Gioe (one of Di Bella's in-house arrangers).

    I have recorded it from the original sheet music, which is in Sheri Mignano's Dropbox folders. I've uploaded it here for easy reference:

    Thanks, Frithjof and John. There are so many of these Italian-American dances that were published in the early 20th century. This is one of the most obscure: I can find no reference or recording of the tune or its composer other than those relating to either Sheri's posting of the score or my previous 2014 recording posted on my channel. It may of course be known under a different name, or be a variation on a more prominent tune, but the very obscurity gives me some leeway in terms of tempo and feel of the tune.
